Growing saffron in Wisconsin

Midwest Farm

(WFRV) – It is the most expensive spice in the world.

Saffron has been used for centuries to flavor food and dye fabrics. It is made from one tiny part of a unique flower.

Millaine Wells takes us on a tour of Bread Basket Farms and gets an update on their unique crop.

The farm is a member of Camo Co-Op, an online market devoted to supporting businesses with connections to veterans.
